Comment of the Day: Oy, Those Facebook Friends

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about all the annoyances that can come with Facebook "friends" who you'd never spend five minutes with in real life.

One reader told us how he laid out his philosophy on his FB page.

This was a recent post I make on my FaceBook page, which received a lot of likes. "Seriously, unless we got drunk together, share similar musical tastes, were fetchin' room mates, got drunk together, DJ'd together, played sport together, got drunk together, traveled together, danced in a drug-filled haze together, ... erm ... drank together - then guess what? We're are not Facebook Friends."
